About the experience

This intriguing half-day piloting adventure for two is available right now from FlyDays and will teach you how to fly! For this thorough training day, you'll be stationed out of Coventry Airport and will participate in exercises both in the air and on the ground to demonstrate what it takes to be a licenced pilot. Following your briefing and pre-flight inspections you'll enter the cockpit to check all the onboard systems and controls. You'll be shown how pilots plan their routes, check the weather, check for safety problems on your planned route using what pilots refer to as the NOTAMs system, and construct a flight plan that includes alternate routes and airports back in the classroom. It's fascinating material, and the principle holds true whether you're flying a little aircraft, a military fighter, or a commercial jet. Now it's time to take off! You will spend the most time at the controls possible while you are flying since one person flies the outbound leg and another flies the return. You'll be completely involved in everything a pilot must do, including communicating with the control tower and maintaining a visual on your destination in addition to flying.
